Nothing says tropical like white bird of paradise, with its enormous leaves, upright stems and exotic flowers. The unique white bird grows in a clumping form and needs a large area in which to spread out and unfurl its big leaves.
The plant blossoms on and off during warm weather, with flowers that bear an astonishing resemblance to a bird’s head. The blooms, however, are less important to your landscape than the ultra-tropical look created by the beautiful foliage.
